Really great food & classes too!
Posted on 08 / 27 / 2012
I was traveling through St Louis and went there based on Happy Cow's ratings. The downside is that they're closed on Mondays, which was the only day I was in town. The upside is that they are closed on Monday in order to offer raw food classes!
Monica was nice enough to let me crash one of her classes. The food was delicious! It was a four-course meal, made with instruction & some class participation (this was the intro to raw, so I don't know if there's more hands-on in the advanced class.
We enjoyed a ginger carrot soup, spiral-cut zukes with marinara (my favorite the dishes!), a non-rice "fried rice", and a cacao desert ball thingie.
Not only was the food good, but she goes over basic ingredents of raw meals & a lot of suggestions on where to get those ingrediants, as well as how to handle them. There was a list of a ton of other, more advanced, classes, if any one actually lives in the area.
Oh, and did I mention the nice people? The whole class was really pleasant & welcoming. Monica let me join an already full class less than two hours before it started! And she directed me to some other local places ihould try out next tme I visit.
For any one travelling, I will warn you that my GPS seemed to take me on a tour through post-apocalyptic St Louis before getting me to the really nice neighborhood where PuraVegan is located.
The two-hour class was very reasonably priced & the menu I saw seemed pretty reasonable for raw veggies.
Raw food, Delicious, Reasonably priced for RAW vegan
The GPS is confused when finding it, Closed on Sunday & Monday for classes
